In October 1800, the Presentation Sisters started a school with just sixty pupils – all girls. Today the secondary school has 720 pupils. By promoting a holistic education the school seeks to ensure that the students are enabled to reach their full potential – academic, spiritual, physical, social, cultural and creative – encouraging them to face life with optimism, self-confidence and an appreciation of excellence at all levels. Students are encouraged to show special concern for the disadvantaged and a commitment to a just society.
